The centre will run clinical trials in the hope of finding new treatments, as Mel Bloor reports.
Interviewees: Dr Laurie Butler - Head of the University of Reading's School of Psychology and Clinical Language Sciences, Les Eggleton whose wife suffers from Dementia and Dr Paul Loughlin, Consultant Psychiatrist in Old Age.
